Brought to You by the Letter B

TexasRed Books offered to include me in a meme she received from Eaton Bennett of Passionate Fiction.

She listed 10 things she loves that start with the letter R and offered to assign readers a letter of their own. I volunteered, and she gave me the letter B.

Here are 10 things I love that start with B. If you want to play along, post in the comments to receive your letter.

  1. Beginnings – A new book, a new birth, a favorite movie, a new year, 1st issue comics, even a new presidency — I love the sense of potential that comes with beginnings.
  2. Books – It’s probably fairly obvious that I love books, all kinds of books. Whether classics, novels, plays, comics, poetry, biography, history or the writing craft, I’m happy with a book in hand.
  3. Bonanza – One of the best television shows ever. The Cartwrights always stand for what’s just, no matter the consequences. Adam is my favorite.
  4. Birdhouses – I like to paint birdhouses. It’s relaxing to think that they don’t have to be perfect in every detail. It’s also a fairly inexpensive hobby. 
  5. Baklava – The exact origin of this dessert of all desserts is fuzzy, but it’s a Greek recipe involving layers of bread, nuts and honey. I only know a couple of people who make it. The store-bought stuff just isn’t the same.
  6. Bookshelves – A natural extension of my love for books is my fascination with bookshelves. Bookshelf is where I get my fix.
  7. Bald Eagles – I count 23 eagle-related items in my house, including a brass statue, a National Geographic and the 2008 calendar I’ve yet to take down. I’m thinking about making a trip to the dollar store to get another small figure.
  8. Bread – Low-carb lifestyle? The Atkins Diet? Meat? Not for me, Pal. Just give me the bread and bread-like items. Mmmm… bread. *Drool*
  9. Bully the Little Stuffed Bull – Who can resist the cuteness factor of this little guy? Besides that, he always has some great comics-related material to share on his blog.
  10. Bagpipes – I hear a lot of people say they don’t like the pipes, but I do.

    I love how you have bagpipes, baklava, and birdhouses in the same post. Thanks for the bookshelf blog link, too!

    Heh, you’re never going to get to write about what you want — just tagged you again.
